Yasmin tablets are pills that are designed to prevent pregnancy among the modern women. These oral contraceptives contain film-coated tablets, which are in two notable colors namely, white and yellow. The number of the yellow tablets is 21 while white takes the lesser amount of 7 tablets totaling to 28 for a full dosage. Yasmin 28 is a combination of two hormones namely, Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol mainly used in the prevention of pregnancy. Yasmin 28 functions by inhibiting the release of an egg during the menstrual cycle. To help obstruct the sperm from reaching the egg, the medication makes the vaginal fluid thicker changing the lining of the uterus to avoid attachment of a fertilized egg. It should be noted that pills used to control birth may make the periods more regular, decrease the risk of developing an ovarian cyst as well as decrease painful periods and blood loss. However, this medicine does not protect one from diseases that are sexually transmitted. This medication should be taken by mouth with or without food, once daily. The pill pack mainly contains 21 pills with active hormones or 7 reminder pills without the hormones. You should take one active pill with hormones once every day for 21 days.
